I made a couple of these using hard maple and dark walnut.

You must really trust your wife….okay, it’s a well crafted rolling pin…either that or it’s a “husband correction tool”...

I really like it. My other passion (besides my wife) is cooking. What was the finish you used on it? Did you use any ball bearings in the handles, or are they stationary?

Sorry for not answering earlier, aldente. The finish was simple food grade mineral oil (it keeps the wood from drying out), which I reapply once or twice a year depending on how often my wife uses it (on food, not on me!). The walnut handles rotate on maple shafts (no bearings); I made sure there was adequate clearance between the shafts and the handles so they wouldn’t “gum up” from food.
